Karim Anaya-Izquierdo's Research

I have a theoretical background in Statistics with emphasis on the use of abstract geometric ideas to develop new statistical models and methods. Gradually I have moved onto the applications and I have done research on a wide range of areas. Before joining the LSHTM I was interested in developing new frailty models for survival analysis and on some extensions of the case-series methodology used in Pharmacoepidemiology. I work mainly with Neal Alexander and we are currently doing research on Spatial Analysis of Cluster Randomised Trials and on some aspects of multivariate count data for use in parasitology.

I am a member of the Tropical Epidemiology Group.

I am associate editor for Statistical Methods and Applications  the official journal of the Italian Statistical Society
